This [prayer] is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (1Timothy 2:3-4)

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the work of truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days…[People will be] always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1, 7)

The Bible is filled with references about “truth.” I think I once counted nearly 400 references to truth in the Scriptures. One thing that tells us is that God wants us to know there is such a thing, a concept oftentimes scoffed at by our relativistic culture.

Notice that salvation is closely tied to truth as well. It seems that it is possible to come to either one first, but once a person has one he must look for the other. Even believers can incorrectly handle the “work of truth.” It seems our sinful and lazy natures are always influencing us to be ashamed of the truth. Of course, some of the blame for this can be placed with Satan as he pushes his false agenda throughout all aspects of our society. It is amazing how badly our secular society yearns for a distortion of the truth through the promotion of man's “higher learning.”

I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
